Matt Smith Joins On Loan

6 August 2021

Hull City are delighted to confirm the signing of midfielder Matt Smith on a season-long loan from Manchester City.

The 21-year-old Wales international spent last season on loan at Doncaster Rovers, where he made 43 appearances.

Smith has also previously had loan spells with Queens Park Rangers and Charlton Athletic, and will now add further competition for places in the Tigers’ midfield.

Speaking about his newest recruit ahead of the new season, Head Coach Grant McCann, said: “We are delighted to bring Matt to Hull City on a season-long loan deal.

"Matt is a very busy and energetic midfield player, but also a very good character. He loves to get on the ball and pass forward. He can play either as a number 8 or a number 6 and suits our style of play.

“He had a very good season on loan at Doncaster Rovers last season and was one of their standout players, and he was also part of the Wales squad for the Euros and I’m sure that experience will have aided his development.

“We are all looking forward to working with him.”

Smith has been allocated shirt number 20.
